Huddersfield Town entertain MK Dons at home this evening knowing that they are 90 minutes away from extending their season with a play-off final with Yorkshire neighbours Sheffield United at Wembley.
MK Dons are the team that stand in the way and despite Huddersfield holding a 2-0 first half lead, many Terriers fans, players & staff alike know that the job is only half done.
Goals from Jack Hunt and Jordan Rhodes at stadium:mk have put Town firmly in the driving seat and we must now see through what potentially could be a nervy last 90 minutes at The Town Ground.
The Dons come looking to score which could leave them open at the back, how this game will pan out god only knows as my crystal ball is broken just now!
Lets just hope we are celebrating come the end of this dramatic evening
'I will set the team out to be positive as we were on Saturday and our intention will be to play from the shape of the team and win the game. If we get the first goal it will give us a massive boost, but if we don't then everybody has to stay strong. It is still game on - as we saw on Sunday things can change dramatically in football.
'It is going to be a cracking atmosphere on Tuesday night,'
'I am fully focused on my team and looking at what we can do to hurt MK Dons. Hopefully at the end of the game we will be going to Wembley, but we know we have got work to do.'
Peter Clarke is expected to be passed fit after taking a whack to his head on Saturday.
Calum Woods is doubtful after sustaining a toe injury.
Scott Arfield is also doubtful after rolling his ankle at stadium:mk
Gary Naysmith is absent.
The man opened the scoring last game and is an even money bet to score at any time tonight.
Alan Smith is struggling with an injury so may be named on the bench.
Luke Chadwick & Mathias Doumbe could come back into the starting XI
The skipper has rallied his troops and will be doing all he can to push them over the line and overturn the two goal defecit
MK Dons 0-2 Huddersfield Town
Rhodes 32, Hunt 73
Huddersfield Town starting XI: Bennett; Hunt, Morrison, P Clarke, Woods; Arfield, Johnson, Miller, Ward; Rhodes, Novak.
MK Dons starting XI: Martin; Chicksen, MacKenzie, Williams, Lewington; Potter, Gleeson; Bowditch, MacDonald, Powell; Smith.
I dont want to tempt any fate, so forgive me for missing this off this time!
